BBC Cancels 'The Hour'

No Third Installment for British Drama

BBC has decided not to give miniseries The Hour a third installment.

The series originally premiered on BBC Two in the U.K. in July 2011 and on BBC America in the U.S. in September 2011. The second installment wrapped on BBCA last month. The second season was co-produced by BBCA.

The show, which was nominated for an Emmy and three Golden Globes last year, centered on a 1950s-era newsmagazine.

The Hour was to be part of BBCA's "Dramaville" block, along with Luther, Ripper Street and the upcoming Spies of Warsaw.
